Forecast of the popularity of parkour
Hrubeš, Jaroslav ; Štědroň, Jakub (advisor) ; Ruda, Tomáš (referee)
Title: Forecast of parkour popularity Objectives: The aim of the thesis is to find out the future development of parkour popularity by means of questioning and brainstorming. The popularity of parkour has reached a similar level to similar so-called underground sports, and it will be interesting to see where the situation in parkour will develop further. Methods: In order to provide as much data as possible, a quantitative electronic survey was used in the thesis research. The questionnaire will be sent out across the parkour community and to people with knowledge of parkour. The research will then be supplemented with a qualitative foresight method of brainstorming in which a group of experts will discuss the issue under investigation. Results: The result of the thesis is a final forecast that predicts the future development of the popularity of parkour. Experts see a large increase in competitive parkour, which will be more medialized and in the public eye. Parkour training will then be divided into performance and recreational, more parkour facilities will be created, social media content will be more educational and parkour will be seen more as a full-fledged sport. Its popularity will therefore depend on the greater frequency and attractiveness of parkour competitions. Keywords: parkour,...

In search for the roots of affirmative action I start at the very beginning of the US history describing institutionalized forms of slavery and later move on to segregation to demonstrate how deep and strong this exclusion was. Since the late 1960s this expression has been used to refer to policies that go beyond the simple prohibition of discrimination on grounds of race, national origin and sex in employment practices and educational system. These policies require further actions, affirmative actions, to make jobs and promotions and admissions to educational programs available to individuals from groups that have historically suffered from discrimination in gaining these opportunities or are, whether discriminated against or not by formal policies and informal practices, infrequently found in certain occupations or educational institutions and programs. In an effort to create an unprejudiced picture of this phenomenon of American modern society, I try to open my work for arguments of both sides, the proponents and the...
The history and present of affirmative action

In search for the roots of Affirmative action I start at the very beginning of the US history describing institutionalized forms of slavery and later on segregation to demonstrate how deep and strong this exclusion was. Since the late 1960s this expression has been used to refer to policies that go beyond the simple prohibition of discrimination on grounds of race, national origin, and sex in employment practices and educational system. These policies require some further action, affirmative action, to make jobs and promotions and admissions to educational programs available to individuals from groups that have historically suffered from discrimination. ln an effort to create an unprejudiced picture of this phenomenon of American modern society I try to open my work for arguments of both side, the proponents and the opponents of affirmative action with the awareness of how controversial this issue for American citizens is. The work however comes to an conclusion, that affirmative action programs as they are and work at the moment do not meet...
